Our Hoss Chandler Strawberry variety is recommended for southern planting. This variety produces a large, delicious fruit that is often described as having an intense strawberry flavor. Chandler has become a very popular variety because of its sweetness, unlike other varieties that have traded taste for greater disease resistance or increased yields.
Chandler strawberries are a vigorous, high-yielding, June-bearing fruit. The fruit can vary from being long and wedge-shaped to large and conical; they have brilliant red color, are glossy, and have an exceptional flavor profile. Easy to grow for the beginner. This variety is excellent for freezing. Planting in late October-early November, you will be harvesting fruit the following spring! In warmer climates, this variety can often begin harvest time in March with a harvest that can last up to 3-4 weeks. A great variety for the family to enjoy! When the plants are healthy, the mature plants will grow on average 8 inches tall and spread 1 foot across with a shallow root system.
The Chandler strawberry variety is susceptible to leaf spot, leaf scorch, and red stele but is tolerant of gray mold. Chandlers are typically ready for harvest 4-6 weeks after blossoming.
